convoluted maze

tears mixed with mud and blood

dwindled in the dust

Just a quick update of what’s been happening after the horrendous floods from last week.  Many homes are still without power and the truth of the damage is coming to light more and more as the water levels recede.  However, the spirit of the Australian people is just unbelievable, this past weekend people came from all over Australia and New Zealand to help with the cleanup… an army of big-hearted volunteers shouldering brooms, mops and shovels began digging and sweeping Brisbane and surroundings out of the mud.  In a remarkable display of community love and spirit, so many signed on for duty, ready to  just bend their backs to help fellow residents (mates) reclaim their homes and waterlogged possessions from the sludge left behind by the worst floods ever.   This brought tears to my eyes … something I will never forget!!!

 

There are many people who did wonderful heroic and courageous things during and after the floods, but there are many who did things that meant a lot more and might not be recognised.  To them we all say thank you!! 

This wildlife warrior risked his life to rescue this injured little joey…(I am happy to say this one made it…many did not)

We all are humbled by the love, spirit and courage Queenslanders have for each other in these difficult times…and proud to be one of them!!!!

*Every man has his own courage, and is betrayed because he seeks in himself the courage of other persons.*  ~Ralph Waldo Emerson (http://www.quotegarden.com/)

MY COUNTRY

I love a sunburnt country,
A land of sweeping plains,
Of ragged mountain ranges,
Of droughts and flooding rains.
I love her far horizons,
I love her jewel-sea,
Her beauty and her terror –
The wide brown land for me!

Core of my heart, my country!
Land of the Rainbow Gold,
For flood and fire and famine,
She pays us back threefold –
Over the thirsty paddocks,
Watch, after many days,
The filmy veil of greenness
That thickens as we gaze.

Broken wings

like a little butterfly

with faded, broken wings

in its armored shell

waiting for the light of day

innocence in time was lost

scattered in the wind of storm

with bleeding hearts we smile

while everything turns to dust

and in the depths a melody

sprinkled on a thousand hills

as time slowly creeks by

THE ONLY CIN

A JOURNEY TO THE WEALTH OF LESS

Life's illusion

The only journey is the journey within.

What you read is what I feel...

How I write, is mine...How you read, is yours

Most of us feel it, some don't. Some of us say it, some don't. Some may agree, some won't. Be as it may, the facts still remain.
